“India faces complicated challenges from China,” says EAM Jaishankar, assures government to keep status quo intact

Jaishankar, who is in South Africa to participate in a conclave of the five-nation BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) grouping, spoke with Lavrov on the sidelines of the meeting of foreign ministers of the BRICS.

“Good to meet FM Sergey Lavrov from Russia in Cape Town this morning on the sidelines of BRICS FMM. Our discussions covered bilateral issues, BRICS, G20 and SCO,” Jaishankar said in a tweet.

India will host the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and G-20 summits in July and September respectively.

Over the past few months, India has emerged as one of the top importers of discounted crude oil from Russia despite growing concern in the West over supplies in view of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

India’s economic engagement with Russia has seen a major revival in the past year, largely due to its supply of discounted Russian oil.

India has yet to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine and has pushed for the resolution of the conflict through dialogue and diplomacy.

On Wednesday, Jaishankar said that the resolution of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia was only in its “beginnings”, as currently the focus is on issues such as a grain corridor, nuclear issues and issues related to the exchange of prisoners of war.

In an interview with DD India, Jaishankar noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has met with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) group together five of the largest developing countries in the world, representing 41% of the world’s population, 24% of world GDP and 16% of world trade.

Jaishankar is also expected to hold bilateral meetings with his counterparts from other BRICS countries.
